Most widely held works by Françoise Mélonio
The Old Regime and the Revolution by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )

in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Old Regime and the Revolution is Alexis de Tocqueville's great meditation on the origins and meanings of the French Revolution. One of the most profound and influential studies of this pivotal event, it remains a relevant and stimulating discussion of the problem of preserving individual and political freedom in the modern world. Alan Kahan's translation provides a faithful, readable rendering of Tocqueville's last masterpiece, and includes notes and variants which reveal Tocqueville's sources and include excerpts from his drafts and revisions. The introduction by France's most eminent scholars of Tocqueville and the French Revolution, Françoise Melonio and the late François Furet, provides a brilliant analysis of the work
Tocqueville and the French by Françoise Mélonio( Book )

17 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in French and English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With his lifelong examination of the relation between freedom and equality in modern societies, Alexis de Tocqueville is the most widely shared icon of Franco-American political culture. But to cite Tocqueville is not necessarily to understand him. Until now, his American readers have not been in a position to recognize the extent to which, even when his ostensible subject was America, Tocqueville was engaging in hotly contested debates about French society and politics. Francoise Melonio's Tocqueville and the French allows for a clearer understanding of Tocqueville's writings by supplying their missing French context, from the time he wrote Democracy in America and The Old Regime and the French Revolution to the present. With its contextualization and interpretation of his works - and a new foreword by Seymour Drescher for American audiences - Tocqueville and the French will compel the attention of historians, sociologists, political scientists, and concerned citizens for whom Tocqueville remains perhaps the single most important interpreter of American society and culture
Histoire culturelle de la France. les dix-huitième et dix-neuvième siècles by Antoine de Baecque( Book )

22 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in French and held by 314 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comment, dans le passé, ceux qui habitaient les limites de la France actuelle se représentaient-ils le monde, un monde figuré ou sublimé par la littérature et les arts, un monde codifié par le droit, les valeurs? L'histoire culturelle, qui s'est récemment constituée comme discipline historique, s'est donné pour tâche de répondre à ces questions

The old régime and the French Revolution by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )

15 editions published between 1988 and 2004 in 3 languages and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Brilliantly and searchingly examines the nature of French society in the years before the Revolution. Why did the Revolution break out? Was it inevitable, and if so, why? How was France really changed by the Revolution? Why did the intellectuals become enemies of the old French state and society? Why was the French nobility so estranged from the French people? Why, in short, were Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette doomed to the guillotines of the Revolution? In this book, Tocqueville examined these and many other questions, and in large measure definitively answered them

Lettres choisies, souvenirs : 1814-1859 by Alexis de Tocqueville( Book )

9 editions published in 2003 in French and Undetermined and held by 131 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dans ce choix de lettres, on trouve le recueil des expériences aussi bien publiques qu'intimes de Tocqueville. Pour lui qui était très conscient de l'importance littéraire de ses lettres, une lettre, c'est un essai. A la manière de Montaigne, mais rédigé à bâtons rompus, avec des lacunes et des redites qui donnent au volume le charme d'un miroir brisé.Avec chaque correspondant, il met à l'épreuve ses idées et son style sans esprit de système. Il se montre ici toujours en apprentissage dans la simplicité de sa nature. On le suit durant cinquante ans, depuis les tracés hésitants de l'enfant jusqu'à l'ultime adieu du mourant ; tantôt solitaire dans les forêts américaines, tantôt ministre assis à la table des puissants, ou notable normand soucieux de fourrage et de haies. Paradoxe : ce miroir brisé fait admirablement ressortir la cohérence entre l'oeuvre et la vie

Mme de Staël : actes du colloque de la Sorbonne, 20 novembre 1999( Book )

2 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in French and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Lire ou relire Corinne ou l'Italie de Mme de Staël, c'est prendre le temps de l'apprécier, de l'analyser, c'est se plonger dans la France et l'Europe du XIXe siècle. Le but de ce colloque datant du 20 novembre 1999 est de réhabiliter une œuvre staëlienne parfois dénigrée, souvent mal comprise. Pour ce faire, les articles des divers intervenants permettent de s'immerger au cœur de cette France de 1807, d'inscrire ce texte non seulement dans une réalité historique, tout en délivrant un vaste témoignage de sa diversité, mais également dans l'espoir profond d'élargir nos horizons sur un texte majeur qui condense les idées d'une des plus célèbres plumes françaises du XIXe siècle
